PARTY ORGANISATION AND ELECTIONS
The party organisation in anything like its modern form must be traced back to the registration societies which sprang up after 1832. While it was necessary for the citizen who wanted to vote to prove his right first and then pay for registration as an elector, it was natural that those who wished to secure his vote should undertake the business of getting him registered, should oppose the registration of those upon whose votes they could not count, and should organise themselves into associations for that purpose. But the increase in the electorate in 1832 was small, only 217,386 on a previous total of 435,391, the real significance of the reform being in the redistribution of seats. It did not even change the requirement that an M.P. should have a landed estate of an annual value of £600 for a county and 300 pounds for a borough. In the next twenty-five years only 403,882 had been added to the register through the growth of wealth and population. The real need for party organisation did not begin to be felt until the reform of 1867 made the biggest proportional increase to be known until 1918. This alone added 938,427, nearly doubling the electorate by bringing in the town worker.
In the years following that reform the parties began to develop their present technique of organisation outside Par-
